Position Summary: Princeton University and Harvard University jointly founded the fellowship program for the advanced study of China's international relations, the Princeton-Harvard China and the World Program (CWP), in 2005. The program's co-directors are Thomas J. Christensen of Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs and Alastair Iain Johnston of Harvard's Government Department. The China and the World Program supports research that integrates theoretical innovations in the field of international relations with the rigorous study of China's interactions with countries, regions, institutions, and non-state actors.

Preference will be given to scholars who are currently working on revising their Ph.D. thesis for publication as a book, or who are just beginning a second major project. Fellows are expected to participate actively in the intellectual life of the institution of residence.
